Standard Rate issue in Project Server 2010 SP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm experiencing some seemingly odd behaviour around Standard Rates applied to resource pre and post the application of SP2 as follows:

    In a Project Server 2010 SP1 environment create an Enterprise Standard Calendar based on a 7 hour working day (09:00 - 12:00 / 13:00 - 17:00).  Set a resource Standard Rate at £430/d.  Open the Resource via PWA > Resource Center > Edit Resource and the rate is displayed as £61.43/h (clearly some rounding issue but close to 430/7)

    In a Project Server 2010 SP2 environment repeat the same steps.  This time the resource Standard Rate displayed on the Edit Resource page is £53.75/h - its divided £430 by 8.

    I could enter the Standard Rate as £61.4285714285714/h but I'd rather enter £430/d and let Project Server calculate the (correct) hourly rate.  Checked the Calendar applied to the Resource, definitely Standard and showing 7 working hours per day.

    Help please...

  • Further investigation has revealed that if the Standard Rate of a resource is entered in Project Professional as £430/d (with a 09:00 - 12:00 / 13:00 - 17:00 Standard calendar and 7hrs / day in 'File > Options > Schedule') then, in a Project Server 2010 RTM or SP1 (no CU) environment, opening the resource via 'PWA > Resource Center > Edit Resource' displays £61.43 whereas in a Project Server SP2 environment the same 'PWA > Resource Center > Edit Resource' page shows £53.75.

    Worryingly post SP2 the Reporting database is incorrectly showing £53.75/h irrespective of how the resource / its daily Standard Rate was entered (this is different to pre SP2 Reporting database).  This suggests that entering daily rates is no longer an option (hopefully I'm wrong on this).
